Unhappy Problem Accessing Obscure Data Variables in Fluent

hi all,

I'm writing a udf to time average certain variables (for NOx model-LES-combustion) that aren't done normally by Fluent but could really use some help...

Can anyone advise how to retrieve data for obscure variables such as premixed-g-equation, and species concentrations for o2 and n2 using a udf? The problem is that I need to import time-averaged data into the corresponding instantaneous data variables for the NOx post-processing model to use, but the udf manual only has the names for common variables like temperature and mixture fraction

Alternatively can anyone suggest how I may be able to work out the variable names?

Any help is greatly appreciated!!!

In the udf manual release 14.5, see Table 3.8: Macros for cell flow variables... You can access species mass fractions with the C_YI(c,t,i) macro.

hi, thanks for the response!

the problem is that I am using the flamelet model so the code you gave doesn't give the species concentrations as they are mixture fraction quantities instead of being species mass fractions, I was wondering if there is any way to work out the code to use to call the variables not listed in the udf guide?

... I think another similar post suggested writing a data file to see them so possibly this is the solution

Still in udf manual release 14.5, section 3.2.3.6.1. says you can retrieve mole/mass fractions into arrays.
